Heart Surgery On Facebook Live

News

Facebook Live gets surgical.

A medical center in Texas will live stream a heart surgery on its Facebook page today.

Viewers can tune in to watch 82-year-old Jim Klodnicki get a new heart valve in real time.

The grandfather of three hopes the procedure will improve his quality of life and allow him to hit the bowling alley again.

As hundreds watch online, surgeons will perform a minimally invasive procedure with a groundbreaking method.

The medical center hopes the live stream will educate viewers about alternatives to open heart surgery.
